Arc System Works Reveal 3 more Characters for BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle!

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Well fellow gamers here we have a rare case of lightning striking twice in one week! We’ve started the week off with a solid BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle reveal and now we end the work week with yet another BBCTB reveal. Talk about luck well at any rate. Today we’ve got something for everyone As this time they’ve evened out the reveal a bit but left a bit of a void of absence with no RWBY character reveal (here’s hoping to seeing the RWBY Bae Yang appear in the future) But with that being said all is not loss as this reveal possibly has something for everyone. Today we’re introduced into the likes of characters from BlazBlue, Persona 4: Arena, and Under Night In-Birth.  Check out the trailer below for a full preview:

As you can see it’s a pretty well mixed bag as it has been revealed that Noel Vermillion (BlazBlue), Chie Satonaka(Persona 4: Arena), And Waldstein(Under Night In-Birth), are this week reveals and should provide a variety that many fans of this upcoming fighter are looking forward to.

Editors Opinion: This is one of my personal favorite reveals thus far. When this game was first announced I was mostly hoping for Noel, Tager and Nu-11(V-13 at best) So far my wish is 1/3rd’s complete lol. I personally find Noel to be a fun character and very agile as well as possessing a wide arsenal of attacks. And Waldstein seems like a character more so to grapple style of character. I still hope that Tager is revealed as far Blazblue character implementation is concerned.

What do you think of this week’s reveal, as hinted at the end of the video. There will be another character reveal next month which we can’t wait to see who’s going to be involved. If you’re in the FGC actively there are currently rumblings that Blake from the RWBY series is the one of the next character reveals but it can only be taken as rumor at this point. But what do you think of this reveal of the roster so far. Are you excited for this title and what characters do you hope to see from either of the franchises? Will you be picking it up? As the months pass we will do a run down of all the characters included among the 4 series. But with being said comment below let us know do you think.

Check out the new Star Wars Battlefront II Single Player Trailer

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Today DICE and EA games have released a new single player trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II alongside some more details in regard to the upcoming release.  As posted via the PS Blog here’s a bit of an introduction into the Star Wars Battlefront Story we will be experiencing:

Star Wars Battlefront II opens with an interrogation. Commander Iden Versio, disarmed and bound, glares at the Rebel soldier holding her captive. The slow, steady tension of the scene runs contrary to the often bombastic, spectacular battles that Star Wars is known for. But Iden’s story is one of military dedication, political motivation, loyalty, and betrayal. And bombastic, spectacular battles.

Iden serves as a humanizing element to the Empire — a force we have spent decades fighting in the Star Wars universe. She and the other agents of Inferno Squad represent the discipline and devotion that the Imperials glorify. But the most striking quality of her character impacts the entire narrative: her courtesy.

The single-player campaign of Star Wars Battlefront II takes place in the moments before and immediately after the conclusion of Return of the Jedi. The prologue mission follows Iden as she deftly escapes Rebel capture, then assists Imperial forces on Endor following the destruction of the second Death Star. But as she creeps behind enemy lines and uses her tactical droid to survey soldier positions, her whispered commands speak volumes. “Scan, please.”

Iden address both her fellow agents and her droid with notable politeness. It is immediately endearing, and a small detail among many that make the beginning moments of the campaign so enjoyable. It showcases that Iden and her team are not supervillains. They are soldiers. Even Iden has misgivings about the Empire’s plans, and those boil over in due time…

Players of the beta earlier this month have an idea of what to expect in regards to gameplay. What do you think of the trailer and summary of the battlefront single player? Are you interested in playing this upon release? Do you think that the characters are engaging enough to warrant a purchase? Star Wars Battlefront II releases November 17th and November 14th for those who have pre-ordered. Comment below and let us know.

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Announced to release January 16th

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

In one of the worse kept secrets among the FGC Sony has finally revealed that Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be releasing January 16th 2018. As reported via the PlayStation blog and official Capcom site. It has been revealed that the much anticipated and requested feature Arcade mode will finally be included for all users of Street Fighter V. Included with this news is that all characters will be available for free once Street Fighter: AE is released. Capcom has stated “Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will come with all 28 characters, which includes those from Season 1 and Season 2”  and they still have one more character that they will be announcing very soon.

  • All characters will receive a second V-Trigger you can choose prior to matches starting

More news will be released in the near future (PSX/Capcom Cup Finals, or PGW) here’s what capcom had to say in closing per the PS Blog.

As we promised in the past, the initial purchase of Street Fighter V is still the only one that you’ll need as the new gameplay-related content in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be part of a free in-game update for current players once it releases! That means if you currently play Street Fighter V, you won’t need to purchase anything else to get Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, etc. – you’ll just need to download the update! For those who don’t currently have Street Fighter V, you’ll be able to purchase Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for $39.99, which will include everything we’ve mentioned above. We wanted to make sure there’s something to celebrate for both current and new players alike.

Editors Opinion: As a fan and lover of the Street Fighter Series this is good news and I hope that it can refresh and ignite a general interest in fans of the series and the FGC community. As many competitive Fighters are on the Rise (Dragon Ball Fighterz, Blazeblue Tag Battle etc.) Capcom has to remind the world the reason why street fighter has lasted for so many years (30 to be exact) and rekindle that competitive edge. Let’s see if this gives them that edge they so desperately need.

But enough of my thoughts what do you think of this news. Does this interest you to make time and the effort of purchasing the long respected fighter again or for the first time this gen? As you know with this news you can expect “The Online Arcade to have many more Tournament with this great news. With that being said comment below and let us know your thoughts.

2D Hack and Slash Indie title ICEY releases tomorrow

What’s up PlayStation Nation,

If you’re big on the trophy hunting scene this title known as _ICEY_ may more than likely be a familiar name you’ve heard in regards to being a quick and easy platinum trophy run. But to those who may not be as involved in such matters may not have ever heard of this game before at all. However that will hopefully change as of tomorrow. Chinese developer Mark Xiao took to the PS Blog, to reveal that his long awaited title _ICEY_ would be coming state side to North America and to the EU via the respective regions PS Stores. Here’s what he had to say below:

About Icey

It’s up to you, really. Do you prefer to see through Icey’s eyes and act as she would? Or do you prefer to remain “yourself” and see the world through your own eyes? Only you can decide what the real story is.

Hack and Slash

There are plenty of combo attacks to tie together during battle in Icey.

Once enemies are sufficiently weakened, you’ll be able to dispatch them quickly in a flurry of slashes.

Absorb energy released from kill shots to then release a massive attack which damages all enemies within view.

Combine all of these together to build up devastating combos.

Resist the Narrator and Find Your Own Path

It’s possible to play Icey as a simple action game, but if you want to discover the real story behind Icey you need to realize that the narrator can be directly disobeyed.

For example, the narrator will tell you to activate a bridge.

Of course, you don’t have to listen.

Resist these instructions enough times, and the narrator will prevent your progress and even teach you how to play the game.

Resist further, and the narrator will create a “temporary” zone for you.

And, of course, try to force you to finally follow the arrow.

Feel free to once again disobey these commands.

Only by annoying the narrator throughout Icey will players be able to uncover some semblance of the truth about the game world.

Also make sure to check out the trailer below:

Icey is definitely an experience worth a look and could prove to be a ton of fun for those who are into hack and slash titles. But don’t take our word for check it out for yourselves. With that being said let us know what do you think. Are you interested in the title? Have you heard of this game prior to today? Comment below let us know.

Tekken 7- Geese Howard Reveal Trailer

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

It is really fascinating to see Geese Howard making his way into the Tekken 7 ring later on this year. Geese is a notable legendary character from the Fatal Fury/The King of Fighters series and will have the chance to face off against the Tekken legends like Heihachi or Kazuya, making the statementI’ll destroy you all!Geese Howard T7In my Opinion: Players that use Geese Howard will have their opponents in fear with Atemi Nage counter as you send foes to the ground that gets in contact with you or if they approach send Geese’s famous wind slash Reppu Ken with both single and double versions present. I’m definitely loving how Bandai Namco kept a lot of the traditional Geese Howard specials and incorporated them into the 3D space of Tekken 7. It’s very similar to what they did with Akuma, great job!Geese Howard Winter 2017

Street Fighter V: Abigail Reveal Trailer

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

During EVO 2017 at Street Fighter V top 8, Capcom finally revealed their next SFV season 2 DLC character. Abigail is the biggest man in Metro City will be available on July 25th and has bulked up since his Final Fight days. Abigail is eight feet tall, making him the largest character in SFV.  He isn’t just a command grab character as most would probably assume. He brings with him plenty of tools and a special called Nitro Charge run. Which is cancel-able and can lead into multiple follow-ups like his stiff punch, cumbersome overhead, command grabs or V-Skill. abigail sfv

What does Abigail have to offer in Street Fighter V?

V-Skill: HungabeeV-SkillAbigail thrusts his size-able belly forwards (either high or low) countering the opponent’s attack and setting himself up for a combo opportunity.

V-Trigger: Max PowerV-TriggerAfter popping his two-bar V-Trigger, Abigail can charge up his four different heavy punches for one hit of armor and extended juggles. A full charge will break the opponent’s guard.

Critical Art: Abigail SpecialCAAbigail slams his opponent with a downward open-palm strike that puts them into a daze. He then hoists them into the air, pummels them like a makeshift speed bag before launching a savage hook that shatters the screen.

Abigail’s Movelist:Abigail MovelistAbigail Movelist 2abigail Movelist 3

costume2costume1On July 25th alongside Abigail are his Story and Premium Battle costumes. He will come with his own personal stage, the Metro City Bay Area. If you take your fight to the distance on his stage, fans will get to witness the iconic sunrise from back in Abigail’s Final Fight days.metrocity

Season 2 Character Pass is available for $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99 and will currently give you access to Akuma, Kolin, Ed and Abigail with two more brand new characters later within the year. The season pass also comes with Premium Battle Costumes with colors 3-10 and the default costume colors 3-10 for each character in SFV.Season passIn my Opinion: Abigail is definitely looking a like force not to be messed with. Though his size could be a gift and curse, making him susceptible to a lot attacks from all angles due to his large hit box. Or creating fear against the opposition with his large body and length for his normal’s and specials. I’m personally interested on getting my hands on Abigail. He’s not the type of character I would typically use in a Street Fighter game, but I just so see what type of mix-ups I can create after his Nitro Charge Run special.
